[texts]Supersymmetry and Grand Unification - John Ellis
Supersymmetry and Grand Unification are the two most promising directions for physics beyond the Standard Model. They receive indirect experimental support from the apparent lightness of the Higgs boson, the values of the gauge couplings measured at LEP and elsewhere, and the persistent solar neutrino deficit. Phenomenological constraints and theoretical models constrain predictions in interesting ways...

[texts]Gauguin's questions in particle physics: Where are we coming from? What are we? Where are we going? - John Ellis
Within particle physics itself, Gauguin's questions may be interpreted as: P1 - What is the status of the Standard Model? P2 - What physics may lie beyond the Standard Model? P3 - What is the `Theory of Everything'? Gauguin's questions may also asked within a cosmological context: C1 - What were the early stages of the Big Bang? C2 - What is the material content of the Universe today? C3 - What is the future of the Universe? In this talk I preview many of the topics to be discussed in the plenar...

[texts]Beyond the Standard Model at the LHC and Beyond - John Ellis
Many of the open questions beyond the Standard Model will be addressed by the LHC, including the origin of mass, supersymmetry, dark matter and the possibility of large extra dimensions. A linear e+ e- collider (LC) with sufficient centre-of-mass energy would add considerable value to the capabilities of the LHC.

[texts]Supersymmetry for Alp Hikers - John Ellis
These lectures provide a phenomenological introduction to supersymmetry, concentrating on the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM). In the first lecture, motivations are provided for thinking that supersymmetry might appear at the TeV scale, including the naturalness of the mass hierarchy, gauge unification and the probable mass of the Higgs boson. In the second lecture, simple globally supersymmetric field theories are introduced, with the emphasis on features important...

[texts]Polarization puts a New Spin on Physics - John Ellis
Polarization and spin effects are useful for probing the Standard Model, in both the electroweak sector and the strong sector, where the spin decomposition of the nucleon is still a hot topic, with important new data on the net polarizations of the gluon and the strange quarks. Spin phenomena are also useful in searches for new physics, for example via measurements of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon and searches for electric dipole moments...
[texts]Aspects of M Theory and Phenomenology - John Ellis
A brief review is presented of selected topics, including a world-sheet formulation of M theory, couplings and scales in M phenomenology, the perils of baryon decay and the possible elevation of free-fermion models to true M- or F-theory compactifications.
[texts]Possible Accelerators @ CERN Beyond the LHC - John Ellis
The physics and world-wide accelerator context for possible accelerator projects at CERN after the LHC are reviewed, including the expectation that an e+ e- linear collider in the TeV energy range will be built elsewhere. Emphasis is laid on the Higgs boson, supersymmetry and neutrino oscillations as benchmarks for physics after the LHC. The default option for CERN's next major project may be the CLIC multi-TeV e+ e- collider project...

Some particle candidates for dark matter are reviewed in the light of recent experimental and theoretical developments. Models for massive neutrinos are discussed in the light of the recent atmospheric-neutrino data, and used to motivate comments on the plausibility of different solutions to the solar neutrino problem. Arguments are given that the lightest supersymmetric particle should be a neutralino \chi, and accelerator and astrophysical constraints used to suggest that 50 GeV \lappeq m_\chi...
[texts]Searching for Particle Physics Beyond the Standard Model at the LHC and Elsewhere - John Ellis
Following a general introduction to open questions beyond the Standard Model, the prospects for addressing them in the new era opened up by the LHC are reviewed. Sample highlights are given of ways in which the LHC is already probing beyond previous experiments, including the searches for supersymmetry, quark and gluon substructure and microscopic black holes.

[texts]Physics Beyond the Standard Model - John Ellis
The Standard Model is in good shape, apart possibly from g_\mu - 2 and some niggling doubts about the electroweak data. Something like a Higgs boson is required to provide particle masses, but theorists are actively considering alternatives. The problems of flavour, unification and quantum gravity will require physics beyond the Standard Model, and astrophysics and cosmology also provide reasons to expect physics beyond the Standard Model, in particular to provide the dark matter and explain the...

[texts]Future of Heavy-Flavour Physics - John Ellis
The prospects for the coming Golden Age of heavy-flavour physics are discussed from the perspective of one who hopes it may provide a window onto physics beyond the Standard Model. Precise QCD calculations are necessary for accurate determinations of CKM parameters, and may be provided by the lattice and new perturbative techniques. The future of CKMology in the wake of the relatively small branching ratio for B_d -> pi pi are discussed, including alternative strategies for measuring alpha and g...

[texts]Particle Physics at Future Colliders - John Ellis
The search for physics beyond the Standard Model motivates new high-energy accelerators, which will require high luminosities in order to produce interesting new heavy particles. Using the Higgs boson and supersymmetry as examples, we discuss the capabilities of the LHC and $e^+ e^-$ linear colliders in the TeV and multi-TeV energy ranges to discover and study new particles.

[texts]Sneutrino Inflation - John Ellis
The seesaw model of neutrinos might explain the size, age, flatness and near-homogeneity of the Universe via sneutrino inflation, as well as explaining the origin of matter via leptogenesis. The sneutrino inflation hypothesis makes specific, testable predictions for cosmic microwave background observables, which are compatible with the first release of data from WMAP, and for flavour-violating charged-lepton decays...

[texts]The Physics Prospects for CLIC - John Ellis
Following a brief outline of the CLIC project, this talk summarizes some of the principal motivations for an e+ e- collider with E_CM = 3 TeV. It is shown by several examples that CLIC would represent a significant step beyond the LHC and ILC in its capabilities for precision measurements at high energies. It would make possible a complete study of a light Higgs boson, including rare decay modes, and would provide a unique tool to study a heavy Higgs boson...

[texts]Hunting Down Interpretations of the HERA Large-Q^2 data - John Ellis
Possible interpretations of the HERA large-Q^2 data are reviewed briefly. The possibility of statistical fluctuations cannot be ruled out, and it seems premature to argue that the H1 and ZEUS anomalies are incompatible. The data cannot be explained away by modifications of parton distributions, nor do contact interactions help. A leptoquark interpretation would need a large tau-q branching ratio. Several R-violating squark interpretations are still viable despite all the constraints, and offer i...

[texts]Looking Back at the First Decade of 21st-Century High-Energy Physics - John Ellis
On the occasion of the Tenth Conference on String Phenomenology in 2011, I review the dramatic progress since 2002 in experimental tests of fundamental theoretical ideas. These include the discovery of (probably fermionic) extra dimensions at the LHC, the discovery of dark matter particles, observations of charged-lepton flavour violation, the debut of quantum gravity phenomenology and the emergence of space-time from the string soup.

[texts]Particles and Cosmology: Learning from Cosmic Rays - John Ellis
The density budget of the Universe is reviewed, and then specific particle candidates for non-bayonic dark matter are introduced, with emphasis on the relevance of cosmic-ray physics. The sizes of the neutrino masses indicated by recent atmospheric and solar neutrino experiments may be too small to contribute much hot dark matter. My favoured candidate for the dominant cold dark matter is the lightest supersymmetric particle, which probably weighs between about 50 GeV and about 600 GeV...

[texts]From Little Bangs to the Big Bang - John Ellis
The `Little Bangs' made in particle collider experiments reproduce the conditions in the Big Bang when the age of the Universe was a fraction of a second. It is thought that matter was generated, the structures in the Universe were formed and cold dark matter froze out during this very early epoch when the equation of state of the Universe was dominated by the quark-gluon plasma (QGP). Future Little Bangs may reveal the mechanism of matter generation and the nature of cold dark matter...

[texts]Learning Physics from the Cosmic Microwave Background - John Ellis
The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) provides a precious window on fundamental physics at very high energy scales, possibly including quantum gravity, GUTs and supersymmetry. The CMB has already enabled defect-based rivals to inflation to be discarded, and will be able to falsify many inflationary models. In combination with other cosmological observations, including those of high-redshift supernovae and large-scale structure, the CMB is on the way to providing a detailed budget for the density...

[texts]Today's View on Strangeness - John Ellis
There are several different experimental indications, such as the pion-nucleon sigma term and polarized deep-inelastic scattering, which suggest that the nucleon wave function contains a hidden s bar s component. This is expected in chiral soliton models, which also predicted the existence of new exotic baryons that may recently have been observed. Another hint of hidden strangeness in the nucleon is provided by copious phi production in various N bar N annihilation channels, which may be due to...

[texts]Testing Fundamental Physics with High-Energy Cosmic Rays - John Ellis
Cosmic rays may provide opportunities for probing fundamental physics. For example, ultra-high-energy cosmic rays might originate from the decays of metastable heavy particles, and astrophysical gamma rays can be used to test models of quantum gravity. Both scenarios offer ways to avoid the GZK cut-off.

[texts]Limits on Sparticle Dark Matter - John Ellis
Arguments are given that the lightest supersymmetric particle should be a neutralino $\chi$. Minimizing the fine tuning of the gauge hierarchy favours $\Omega_{\chi} h^2 \sim 0.1$. There are important constraints on the parameter space of the MSSM from the stability of the electroweak vacuum. Co-annihilation with the next-to-lightest supersymmetric particle is potentially significant. Incorporating the latest accelerator constraints from LEP and elsewhere, we find that 50 GeV $\lappeq m_\chi \la...
